The education situation in America is dire. Our schools aren’t performing well compared to those in other nations–especially in math and science. It looks like we’re headed for a future where we’ll no longer be a world leader of industry and innovation. Or are we? I’m not so sure. What I’ve seen over the past few years in education technology gives me a lot of hope. One of the organizations on the leading edge of this phenomenon is Reasoning Mind. They’re a Houston, TX based non-profit that is working across the country and using web-based technology to move us towards “a day when children love their math class so much, they do math problems at home instead of playing video games.” They’ve already accomplished this goal with thousands of children, and they think that they can make it a reality across country inside of a decade. How would you like to be part of that?
Reasoning Mind does its amazing work through partnerships with schools. By combining online tools with the face-to-face instruction that great teachers provide, Reasoning Mind is able to create an environment where students get individualized attention that allows them to learn at a pace that is best for them. (If you’d like to take a closer look at how the software works, take a look at these great videos or sign up for a guest account.)
For Reasoning Mind the key to student success is making sure that schools and teachers are fully equipped to make the most of the online tools. That’s why Reasoning Mind hires some of America’s brightest college graduates every year to join them as Program Coordinators. As a Reasoning Mind Program Coordinator, you’ll be responsible for supporting dozens of teachers as they use Reasoning Mind to help them deliver a first-rate mathematics education to all of their students. You can learn more about the position from these links:

Reasoning Mind is currently looking to hire 15 new Program Coordinators to start in Summer 2013. These positions will be located in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Other locations may become available depending on partnership agreements with schools. This is an amazing opportunity to have a meaningful impact on America’s education problem while working for a quickly-growing and energetic organization.
Submit your resume and cover letter via the link above by either February 15th or March 15th (they have staggered deadlines, that’s not a typo) to begin your application process!
Applying involves completing written assignments that are meant to simulate the type of work that Program Coordinators do at Reasoning Mind. The goal is to help you get a better idea of whether you’ll find the work satisfying (and whether they’ll find your work satisfying), so don’t approach this like you approach other job applications. A résumé and cover letter isn’t enough to grab one of the 15 spots.
